I am pretty sure I’m not the only one this year who has a Christmas list with
L.O.L Surprise dolls on them. For the last month, my sweet baby girl has been pressing me to buy them every time we go to the store. Well in our house we tell the kids at the end of September any toys they want. It needs to go on their Christmas list. Now if you are anything like me you know they are going to sell out. Last year I was unable to find any until mid Spring. So to eliminate having to argue with my daughter after this Christmas is over, I took the initiative to not wait and started stocking up on them early. And since Amazon has become my go-to spot for pretty much everything I want for the kids lately. That is the exact place I have been stocking up on them. Only because the last time I went to the store I could barely find any. I had no clue those little dolls were that popular. My bad!!!!! so if you don’t want to be like me check out a few I found on Amazon blow.
P.S. I have been secretly asking her which ones are best to purchase
One is the eye spy series
Glitter Glam Series (I think because I like glitter)
Next on my list to purchase:
I am finally finished with the main part of my bedroom organization. Well at least my side of the room. I feel like I can better keep things organized now. Below is a video of me explaining how I did all of this. If you want me to do a tutorial on my nail polish holder let me know.
Everything is the video & photos:
Foam Board I got from the dollar tree
Contact Paper – I got from Walmart
Drawer Cabinets – I ordered the cabinets from Michael’s
The Wood Shelf – I picked up at home depot
The drawer organizers – I made them from cereal boxes and contact paper
Today I created another unicorn themed item for Autumn’s birthday. DIY Unicorn Hairbows. She absolutely loves them. I can not wait for her to wear them to school on her birthday. They were super easy to make and a small amount of time. Best of all they can be made in so many different ways. After her birthday I think I will still be making a lot more. Watch the video below to see how I made them.
DIY Unicorn Birthday Invitations
What you will need:
Paint – I used pigment paint
Vinyl or stencil
Pencil to trace
First things first, I cut the cardstock into 5×5 cm pieces. Of course, you can cut them into the sizes that fit your needs. Prior to cutting my cardstock, I created a design on my Silhouette Cameo for the unicorn face.
If you don’t have a
Silhouette Cameo cutter or equivalent you can probably just print the stencil from a piece of paper or actual stencil.
Once I did that I traced the face on the card stock using the stencil. Then I traced the ears and horn with a mechanical pencil (not that it makes a difference). After that, I placed the flower stickers right between the ears under the horn. I then colored the ears and horns and began putting the rest of the information like Autumn’s name, age and other important information on the invitations. As well as the washi tape.
I found the metallic washi tape online but you can purchase it anywhere. I thought the scalloped tape looked better on the side. While the patterned green tape looked better on the bottom. Now on to the next step.
The final step is placing the polka dots on the invitation with the paint. I like the mix of pink and aqua green colors. The final result is:
I think it turned out good. Next time I will not hand write the information. I will more than likely use my printer or the pens that came with my Silhouette Cameo. I see a few flaws but, Autumn loved them and couldn’t wait to pass them out to her friends. To me, her happiness is all that matters.
Giorgio Armani Si PASSIONE
Some of you may know that I am signed up with Influenster and I have been able to try and review several products. Full-size products, not sample sizes. As well I have gotten gift cards and virtual boxes from them.
What I want to tell you about today is this amazing and I mean amazing perfume from Giorgio Armani. The name of this fascinating scent is Si PASSIONE. Initially, I thought it would be too strong for my taste. Boy was I wrong. It has a blend of rose and woody vanilla, which honestly when I heard woody, I thought I would smell like a man. No! This perfume has the most enticing, mild, subtle scent. Honestly, more than I can ask for. I love it! Believe me, once the bottle has run out I will be purchasing more.
Again, Influenster is how I was able to get this product (full-size) for free as part of a contest. If I win I will receive more products from Giorgio Armani. Sign Up for yourself today!
